CONEY HATCH FOUR-CD REVIEW “POWERHOUSE ROCK RETURN” BY JOHN EMMS

14877462_orig

No one expected an album this good after over a 25 year gap, but Coney Hatch Four simply brims with muscular riffs and good solid songcraft.

Fans should have no reservations about scooping up this album worldwide.

Why?

It kills.

From the four on the floor rumble of Blown Away with Andy Curran’s bottom end and drummer Dave Ketchum’s musuclar drumming into the wah wah guitar solo of Steve Shelski everyone is aboard Carl Dixon’s passion on the very first track

The music somehow just feels right.

Curran takes the reigns on the anthemic powerhouse of Boy’s Club, the Cheap trick vibe of  Do it Again (not the Steely Dan track) and the great chunk heavy chorus of We Want More.

Elsewhere, Dixon’s sense of songcraft is in excellent form on Holding On and Revive.

It’s no secret the band flies higher thanks to Shelski’s great sense of guitar dynamics and inventive solos, but it all comes down to the chemistry of the four players.

With  the amazing gutsy return of Carl Dixon from his near fatal car crash this album is steering it’s own course!
